Dear CLDI friends and family,

I hope the end of your summer is going well and finds you with the same excitement and anticipation that we have here at the Tapestry construction site. It’s time for another update on our progress, and while the visual transformation may not be as dramatic as before, I want to assure you that we are steadily moving toward the finish line.

In this phase, it’s all about the finer details. We’re currently busy with sheetrock tape and texture, priming, and painting, ensuring that every corner of our project receives the attention it deserves. While it may not be as instantly eye-catching as walls going up or roofs being constructed, these meticulous steps are what truly bring a space to life. The texture of a freshly painted wall, the smoothness of a perfectly taped seam – these are the things that make a house feel like a home. We’re also thrilled to share that our final bathtubs have arrived, and our dedicated team is working diligently to install them. Additionally, we anticipate that the siding work will be substantially completed by the end of next week. Your support has brought us this far, and every brushstroke, every tile laid, is a testament to your generosity and belief in our mission. Thank you for being a crucial part of this journey.

Have a great weekend!

Kaleb Perdew
